The faders on this board are all full of fuzz and no fixes coming. I need to slide faders constantly! They must be smooth.
Avatar Wed. 6/20/18 5:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I am confused af when I watch a sound engineer at a live show and they're sitting back. Even when I'm running sound for a single person giving a speech, I am on the knobs the entire time.

On live with phone calls again next Monday, then off until 3 weeks later.

Avatar Wed. 6/20/18 6:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I looped it in a mix for my freeform dance group Sunday. And in a show back in the mid 90's using the CD player A-B loop I miss so so much.

Thanks Kenzo, exiting work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/20/18 6:37pm Rich in Washington:

A-B looping is fantastic. I used to have a really old portable Sony CD Discman that had seamless looping.
Avatar Wed. 6/20/18 6:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah, the Sony A-B looping was totally seamless. Amazing. Then computers came along and couldn't do that reliably.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/20/18 6:41pm Rich in Washington:

I think the only thing that approaches that ability to loop on the fly like that are some of those looper pedals for guitar
